Davis Professor of Economic Organizations & Innovation at Trinity College. He was President of the Association of Private Enterprise Education, & a board member for the Center on Entrepreneurial Innovation & the Center on Culture & Civil Society at the Independent Institute. An author & editor of numerous publications, Dr. Stringham is also a winner of several awards including the Templeton Culture of Enterprise Best Article Award. Dr. Stringham’s presentation will cover Free Market Environmentalism or how private property rights & market solutions can best mitigate environmental impacts. In other words, it is the lack of private property rights – according to free market environmentalists – that increases vulnerability to resource abuse: i.e. Tragedy of the Commons. Resources (deer, land, rivers, oceans, buildings) that are not owned privately are often more vulnerable to abuse since no one person or family has a direct responsibility for them. “No one washes a rental car.” Is this true with deer?
